Three men are in police custody today following early morning arrests at the Fairmont Southampton Resort where a hotel room parties got out of hand.
Police were called to the hotel property at 2:52am, following the report of suspicious activity in a hotel room of the hotel, where the attending officers found a large crowd assembled in the room, loud music and the smell of marijuana.
Police also noticed a considerable amount of broken glass in the hotel lobby when they arrived from a disturbance where a number of males involved in a melee threw projectiles.
Officers were summoned back to the hotel at 4am, to find a man lying unconscious in the area of the 4th floor elevator.
A spokesman said: “It appears that victim was involved in a verbal altercation where eventually he was set upon by a group of males and was subsequently rendered unconscious.” He was taken to the hospital’s Emergency Department where he was treated for non-life threatening injuries.
In an unrelated incident, another man reported being robbed of his helmet and cell phone in the hotel parking lot. Two men were arrested in connection with this matter.
Another local male occupant of the hotel reported being robbed of his chain whilst attending a room party. The victim knows who the perpetrators are but refuses to press charges.
A total of three men were arrested in connection with incidents and an active investigation is now underway.
Police are appealing for witnesses or anyone who was at the hotel who would like to make a report of criminal activity or untoward behaviour to contact the Criminal Investigation Division on 295-0011.
